For the last three weeks I’ve been obsessing over ombre manicures. They’re so fun!
These are the shades of red, blue, and green I’ve been loving:
I like to start with the darkest shade at my thumb and end with the lightest shade at my pinky. Finding new color combinations is entertaining and the result is such an interesting departure from standard manicures. Right now I can’t imagine painting my nails just one color again!
Before I end this quick post, I’d like to mention something else I’ve discovered. Lemons! They’re so delicious, and I don’t only mean their juice. Last night while I was making myself an extreme lemonade, i.e. squeezing an entire lemon and pouring the entire juice into water without sugar, I began wondering if simply eating a lemon would taste better than lemonade. So I tried it and it was a revelation. And trust me, it is beyond amazing… especially if you love acidity. It’s crisp, cool, and instantly refreshing – perfect for those sweltering summer days. And in addition to carrying loads of vitamins it wakes you up just like coffee! No joke. I’m officially obsessed. So if you’re feeling particularly brave or bored one fateful day, try it out – I promise you won’t regret it.
I hope you don’t think I’m (too) weird.
p.s. Tell me what you guys think! What do you think about ombre nails and lemons? Or just drop by a hello, it always makes me happy 🙂
